    Great tour by Peter. Peter has a very strong knowledge about the city and its history, the 2h were very informative. Great value for money, we strongly recommend. Be aware that meeting point showed in Google Maps is not accurate, so look for the guide in the square in front of the Tourism Office (rather than behind it).

    Una bonita experiencia! La Guía (Stephanie) muy buena, muy preparada y muy amena. Lo malo es que en grupos grandes y con la bulla exterior no se escucha bien. Deben proveer audífonos portátiles o algún sistema para que la calidad del tour mejore. O limitarlo a 10-12 personas máximo. Nuestro grupo era de casi 30 personas y al final pierdes el hilo y el interés porque no escuchas bien.

    Notre guide était très professionnel et sympathique. Beaucoup d'anecdotes et de lieux intéressants dans des domaines différents. Mes grands parents auraient aimer avoir la possibilité de s'asseoir à certains moment de la visite. Nous avons adoré et le recommencerons. Merci beaucoup
